About the property

2 Bedroom, 1.5 Bath Cabin With Mountain Views - Sleeps 6.

Cascade, Colorado sits at 7,800 feet elevation at the foot of Pikes Peak. It is a sleepy mountain town with rustic homes and wonderful residents. While only nine miles from Colorado Springs, it feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of city life. Come stay with us and you may never want to leave!

Enjoy breathtaking views, hike nearby trails, visit the many attractions, dine at the various restaurants, shop the local merchants or just kick back and relax on the deck with your private waterfall in a beautiful, peaceful setting.

We all need time away from the stress and strain of everyday life. Nothing else can give you the sense of peace and relaxation that you will get from spending time in nature. This location will allow you to unwind and enjoy the feeling of being away from it all without giving up any of the amenities and adventure you expect from your vacation.

All of the necessities are waiting for you here. Just grab your suitcase, your family and friends. We provide linens, extra blankets (the mountains can be chilly even in summer), dishes, cookware and flatware. We have books, movies and games for those nights that you just want to stay in and chill out. If you need anything special, just let us know and we will do our best to accommodate.

This completely remodeled 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath, 1200 square foot cabin is well appointed with all of the comforts of home. It features a fully stocked gourmet kitchen with a gas range, family size refrigerator, high efficiency dishwasher and all of the necessary utensils and small appliances to whip up a family meal. Or, visit any of the nearby restaurants for a delicious, no hassle meal. Coffee maker, blender, mixer and other appliances are provided.

The living room has large windows with spectacular views. The sofa pulls out to a full size bed. The entertainment center has a 46" television, surround sound and CD/DVD player. Wireless internet is included.

The upstairs master bedroom has a queen size bed, large closet and dressers for storing your personal belongings.

The adjacent deck has a privacy wall, a waterfall and a feeling of seclusion from the world outside. Adjoining the master is the spacious bath with oversize tub and shower.

The downstairs bedroom has a queen size bed and closet, a 32" television and lots of storage. A few steps away is a bath with walk in shower.

The laundry room features a high efficiency washer and gas dryer for guest use.

About Berrie Ives

We live in the area and love it! Brian was raised just a few miles west in Green Mountain Falls. Berrie grew up in Florida and other places, but has called Colorado home since 2000.

Berrie Ives purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Berrie Ives chose Cascade

We fell in love with the views and the history of the house. It was previously owned by the famed Unser racing family. We are big fans of the Pikes Peak Hill Climb and enjoy knowing that our home is permanently affiliated with the race. The area is perfect for nature lovers and we take advantage of the trails and scenery at every opportunity.

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is perfectly situated between the beautiful city of Colorado springs and the mountains of Ute pass and beyond. You can be downtown or deep into the forest in a matter of minutes. The elevation makes for cooler summer days and the views are awe inspiring. Woodland park is seven miles west with shopping, restaurants and lots of fun activities.

Beautiful and cozy in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

This home was everything we needed, and more, to make our Colorado vacation perfect!

The house is beautifully decorated, is very comfortable and cozy! It has everything you need, plus some. There were even snacks, water and breakfast items waiting for us when we arrived! They thought of everything.

The location was convienent to all of our adventures including Garden of the Gods, Pikes Peak, and the Royal Gorge.

The kitchen was fully equipped with everything you needed to prepare meals.

The bed was very comfortable - a real bonus!

This place was the total package! I would love to stay there again!

Charming, cozy and convenient

  • 5 of 5

Great central location for all the activities in the Pikes Peak area. The house was clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for our week-long stay -- great bathrooms, a well-stocked kitchen, a laundry and spaces to relax and enjoy the views. It's a nicely decorated place and it's clear that the owners have put a lot of effort into the house. Definitely has that 'home away from home' feel. We would stay here again!
